Water temp varied from 45.6-48.1 degrees depending on which side of the lake. I fished a Mr Yamamoto, brown 4'' and managed my first bass of 2011. A decent but very sluggish 2.5lb largie. I just pitched them to the docks and let them sink at their natural pace. Missed 3 other strikes. Only had 2 hours on the water so overall I was stoked. Can't wait till it warms up. On another note, this lake really seems to be a giant fish bowl regarding bottom structure or lack of. I focus mainly on 25 feet or less all year long. The weedline seems to go away around the 15-20 ft depth. Any suggestions on where in the heck all the bass go? Should I focus on the bottom in either the weeds or mud? I wish this lake had actual drop offs and riprap.
